I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

A PSYCHIC AFFAIR 
ASTRID BROWN 
THORNED ROSE PUBLICATIONS, 2ND ED.
2018 

♦♦♦ 
3 STARS


Astrid Brown is a professional psychic medium and has used her experience as a touchstone to introduce readers to the details of ‘mediumship’ and how one navigates the psychic realm in real life. Brown chooses to reach readers through writing a paranormal romance, A Psychic Affair, where her characters become psychically connected developing an intimate relationship. 
There are millions of couples like Maryann and John, two persons who don’t live near each other yet are conducting a life deeply engaged with each other. For man and most of us, this takes the form of relationships conducted online or via social media. Brown takes this notion a step further showing how it can happen without a device but with ones mind. The story of this psychically conducted affair gives readers a window into understanding just what kinds of psychic connection there are and how they function. 
In fact, this is how Brown opens her book by giving us Maryann as a teacher who has to negotiate a standard curriculum and the ever present inquiry of her students into her mediumship. In this way, Brown’s novel is also part guide book, which the author herself states as a necessary aside. A Psychic Affair will serve as an introduction of sorts for those readers curious about the paranormal. For skeptics or casual readers, it is unlikely there will be much substance here of note. Yet like the students Maryann teaches early on in the novel, these kind of readers may be surprised if they continue on or decide to put for the effort, “developing psychically is a choice of our own choosing, for we do have free will.” Maryann like Brown is under no obligation to prove to readers anything but as she shows in the novel, she believes she can at any time. 
Readers who long for a different kind of romance and intrigued by paranormal practices will find A Psychic Affair to be subtly endearing and familiar. The relationship of the novel is really no different than many ordinary relationships. There is a time of wariness, of learning about each other, of tension while deciding whether or not to trust, the consultation with friends, and commitment or consummation. What is perhaps the most interesting relationship of the novel is less the long distance relationship and more the one Maryann develops with her student Annie. It is in these interaction readers see an organic explanation of the kind of practices Brown is most interested in.
A Psychic Affair mixes different styles giving us narrative sections of transcriptions of characters’ Instant Messaging, Brown’s own poetry on being psychic between chapters as well as peppered throughout, and italicized portions written in a prose similar to instruction manuals to ground readers in the details and variety paranormal activities. Readers will find Brown’s novel accessible as its messages and experiences can be incorporate into their own understandings of the world.

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
